Classroom Management: Beliefs of Preservice Teachers and Classroom Teachers Concerning Classroom Management Styles.
Laut, John
Noting that preservice teachers and experienced teachers share a concern for classroom management, this study compared the beliefs of classroom teachers, intern teachers, and senior level practicum students regarding classroom management styles. Participating in the study were 43 early childhood and 44 elementary education preservice teachers, and 87 classroom teachers. Data were collected by means of the Inventory of Classroom Management Style subscales to address the instructional, disciplinary, and personal dimensions of classroom management. It was hypothesized that greater experience in teaching would be associated with less interventionist management styles. Findings suggested that there were no subscale differences on the Classroom Management Style instrument. Practicum students, those with the least teaching experience, were more non-interventionist than other groups. Interns, with the middle level of teaching experience, were more interventionist than both practicum students and experienced teachers. (The framework for the inventory of classroom management style is appended.) (KB)
